Not only does it taste great, it is also simple to make and a healthy treat.
Step 1: What You'll Need.
1 l apple cider
2 pieces of cinamon bark
1 tea spoon of cloves
4 cardamom seed pods
Use apple cider that is not too sweet. If you can get some freshly pressed cider from a farm, or press your own, that gives the best flavor. If all you can find is sweet cider or juice, you can add some lemon or orange to give it some extra acidity. I like this combination of spices that remind me of Christmass, but you can of course experiment with the spices of your choice. A little chili gives an interesting sting, and a little fresh ginger is also nice together with the mentioned spices.
You can also add ground spices if that is what you have available, but be aware that this can make the drink feel a bit gritty in your mouth.
Step 2: Heat
I hope you enjoy this warm winter drink, whether you choose to drink it cuddled up in the sofa or out in the snow.
